Croydon Commissioning Group is reviewing its Urgent Care Services, which include at present a Urgent Care Centre, Minor Injury Units, a Walk in Centre and GP out of hours. Urgent and emergency care use has decreased overall and in most wards. Annually there are about 60,000 calls to 111 service from Croydon residents. Use of urgent care is linked to areas of deprivation. Pharmacies and GP practices are concentrated in the north of the borough.
CCG wants to meet local urgent care needs, extended services - not reduced ones, improve accessibility of services, promote prevention and self care.
Three options have been put forward, with Option 1 being the preferred one (by the CCG): three GP hubs, in the vicinity of existing services, open 8 am to 8 pm, 365 days a year, offering walk in facilities as well as bootable appointments.
The Governing Body will provide its decision on final model in February 2016. The procurement process should take place between January and March 201. The services to be awarded in April 2016 with new services to commence in April 2017. For information on how to have a say
